Does anyone use HotGloo to do prototypes in shared environments?

It looks pretty cool, and I've played around with it a bit, but I'm not sure how well it plays out in client situations when you have to get deliverables out fast compared to programs like Omnigraffle where you can bang things out in short order.

Any success stories using it?

Prototyping tools: Axure (on Mac) VS Fireworks VS Flash Catalyst VS ???

Hi all,

For one of our clients I am asked to create a 'clickable demo' for usability testing. I've started this thread to ask you guys what tools you use/prefer/advice to create clickable demos (including arguments would do best). The project is about a recruitment section of a corporate site and will include pretty much dynamic content and some flash elements.

"Kindle Love" concept prototype:

Given soundings of a new 2nd generation Kindle on the way, thought you
might get a kick out this short concept prototype ("Kindle Love")
video sketch by a small group of students in my recent "Scenarios &
Simulations" course at Kansas. Credits at end.

prototype philosophy

Great article on the business week site today about design...

Near the end of the article Claudia Kotchka talks about prototype workshops...

"Participants get scared using such rough prototypes to elicit
consumer feedback at the beginning, but they are won over when they
see the benefits of co-creation," says Kotchka.

UX/IxD terminology: Prototype

Okay, I've heard lots of words around here that I think we all have
different meanings to us personally. The one that seems to be currently
messing up a few of us in one thread is the word "prototype", so let's start
with that.

To me, a prototype is a scaled down model of what you want things to look
like. I think what's messing us up the most is that it's too general of a
term and could be used to describe just about anything we do at any point.

I'll break down some of the terminology I use with the client and you can
agree or disagree from there.
